Nasdaq Market Technology business continues to gain momentum with New Markets initiative

The concept of what a market is has radically evolved over the past few years, something that Nasdaq as an operator and builder of markets has played an important part of first-hand, said Paul McKeown, Senior Vice President and Head of Marketplace Operators and New Markets, Market Technology, Nasdaq. We are focused on democratizing marketplace technology by offering essential components of matching engine technology traditionally used by financial markets, and bringing the capabilities to a cross-asset, cross-industry environment via the cloud. Football Index will use our matching engine technology to provide their clients with a platform to revolutionize how fixed-odds betting operates.

Nasdaq is a legendary brand, said Adam Cole, Founder and CEO, Football Index. We’re very proud and excited to work with them to provide our order matching service, which is the powerhouse of any exchange. Football Index has come a very long way in a short period of time. Our relationship with Nasdaq is another major step in our journey to establish Football Index as a world-class exchange, worthy of the world’s top footballers that are traded on it.”

Through the agreement, the Football Index joins a global community of marketplace operators that have access to a range of services through the Nasdaq Financial Framework including:

Comprehensive coverage of trading requirements

About Football Index:
In 2015, BetIndex Ltd launched the world’s first football stock market, Football Index, where traders can buy and sell shares in professional footballers with real money. The UK licensed gambling platform provides customers with an exciting alternative to the traditional sports betting markets. The first of its kind, Football Index is revolutionary in offering customers a chance to bet on the future success of football players, rather than gambling on the short-lived outcome of football matches. The platform operates with all the characteristics of a stock market, with traders buying units of footballers (known as ‘shares’), building their football portfolios and trying to sell at a profit. Traders win dividends on each share they own in players who are performing well on the pitch or trending in the media, with prices based purely on supply and demand.

Players Can Still Vote for Their Favourite Finalists in the AskGamblers Awards Race
Reading Time: 2 minutes

The top 10 finalists are lined up within all four categories, and the ultimate winner’s title per category is anyone’s game at this point. With two more months left until the voting phase is closed, the players are encouraged to give their final say and help choose the Best Online Casino, the Best New Online Casino, the Best New Slot and the Best Software Provider winners.

The AskGamblers Awards will be officially closing on 17 January 2020, on the night of the AskGamblers Awards.

Good news for everyone who still hasn’t had the chance to cast their vote and help AskGamblers choose the Best Online Casino, the Best New Online Casino, the Best New Slot and the Best Software Provider winners – there is still time to vote, and the only condition is to be a registered user on the AskGamblers website.

AskGamblers’ Head of Account has excitedly shared his anticipation for the announcement of the winners’ names and the AskGamblers Awards night, too: “Everyone’s biting their nails, waiting to see who the winners are going to be. We’ve been in this for so many months and the fact that the end is so close is keeping us all exhilarated! We couldn’t be happier about the way the process has been going so far. The night of the announcement will be spectacular for sure, and I guess all we can do now is wait for the players’ final votes. So exciting!”

The voting process is taking place on the AskGamblers Awards website, with each player granted the opportunity to vote for only one of their favourites in each category. Once the vote is placed there is no turning back, meaning – the players can’t take their vote back, vote several times per category or rethink their choice.

A reminder concerning categories available for voting:

Best Online Casino – The players vote for, in their opinion, the online casino they’ve had the best experience playing at. This category lists casinos that have been around for a while and have successfully kept their good name intact by continually providing quality gambling opportunities.

The online casino brands that have made the cut are as follows: Betsson Casino, Bitstarz Casino, CampeonBet, Everum Casino, EnergyCasino, Gunsbet Casino, King Billy Casino, Konung Casino, Mr.Play and Platincasino.

Best New Online Casino – The category lists new online casinos to have recently come around and become the players’ gambling go-to. In the industry that’s as competitive as this, it is true success for new casinos to be approved by both veteran and new players.

The best new casinos listed are 21.com, BaoCasino, MonteCryptos Casino, Maneki, Sportsbet.io, Spinia Casino, SlotWolf, Syndicate, Wishmaker, and Wazamba Casino.

Best New Slot – Spinning reels is one of the players’ favourite gambling activities, and when new slots come about, the excitement is almost palpable. This category lists new slots in the industry the players have accepted, approved, and potentially grown to love.
